  5. WG10 Professional Pharmacy Services

    Work Group 10 Professional Pharmacy Services supports the pharmacist’s individual and collaborative planning, delivery, documentation and quality assessment of patient care services through the development and distribution of standards, standards-based templates, and implementation guides.

Pharmacists contribute to improving patients’ health by providing patient care services as authorized by license and allowed under their scope of practice and collaborative practice agreements.
